What's New?

Hot from the press! DAORN has received a very generous donation of 1000 3-packs of lightweight SmartWool socks. SmartWool requests that DAORN distribute the socks to registered nurses in Colorado in appreciation of their efforts during the pandemic. The DAORN leadership is formulating a plan to distribute the socks but we would first like to offer the DAORN nurses some of the socks. We have female socks (L, M, S) and male socks (L, M). There is a wide diversity of colors and patterns in these sizes. Please know that it is not feasible to allow requests for a specific color.

Jim will mail you a set of socks for the cost of an envelope and mailing costs – $5 in the Denver area. If you would like a 3 pack of socks please respond by text or e-mail to Jim Stobinski (720.257.4372 or jstobinski at He will instruct you where to send the check in return for the socks. Here’s to happy nurse feet!
